Silva | “We Started Too Slow”

By Sammy Brough

Marco Silva agreed that his Watford side weren’t at the races yesterday following their disappointing 4-1 defeat at home to Huddersfield. 

A double for Terriers' midfielder Aaron Mooy, a first Premier League goal for Elias Kachunga, and a Laurent Depoitre strike sealed a disappointing week of Premier League action for the Hornets. 

Silva admitted the team’s performance wasn’t good enough but expressed the need to bounce back as soon as possible. 

“This game is done and we can’t change the result. Now is the moment for us to keep focused on our job and what we can control and to prepare for the next game,” the Head Coach said. 

“In general, I agree [worst performance of the season]. You can talk a lot about things in the match, I want to really keep focused on our job and what we can control and until the first goal we didn’t perform like we needed.

“We started slow in some moments. The second and third goal we made mistakes that at this level you cannot make.”

With the opening goal taking the wind out of the Hornets’ sails early on, Huddersfield's second was the hammer blow.

Things got worse for Silva’s men when skipper Troy Deeney was shown a dubious red card, and the Watford Head Coach was quick to insist there was no problem in terms of aggression from his side. 

“No discipline problem, I’m sure of that. We don’t have a discipline issue, I’m sure,” he said.

“Each goal, each foul, each corner, each throw-in has an impact. But each goal has a big, big impact in one game. The first goal had a big impact, the second goal had a big impact.”

Depoitre made it 3-0 just five minutes into the second-half to make things worse for The Golden Boys, on a wet and bitterly cold afternoon in Hertfordshire. But when Abdoulaye Doucouré’s sumptuous half-volley hit the back of the net, Watford were provided with the smallest of lifelines. 

Match Review

Former Watford man Jonathan Hogg was also shown a second yellow card to even the numbers up, but the dream comeback wasn’t to be. Mooy’s second late-on scuppered any potential Vicarage Road celebration. He calmly converted from the spot following a clumsy trip on Depoitre from Doucouré.

With a congested fixture list continuing for Premier League teams, Silva knows his players will analyse and try to react positively.

“I think we will understand what we did in the wrong way, I’m sure of that. The players already start to understand when we talk after the match,” he explained to the assembled media after the game. 

“What I will make sure for my players and me is that we analyse the game. Everything we did until now is not only the last four or five games.

“We have 22 points in the table, of course you need and we must try to do everything to change the last result. This is my job and it is what I can control, this is our goal for the next match to change the last result”
